Depends on your size and weight brah. At 150.5 cm it's a pretty short board for powder. I'm 5'7 175lbs and if I was considering this board I'd go for the DC Biitner pro model, it's a 156.5 cm and would be much better in powder.

This is a serious contender for my favorite board I've ever ridden. The combination of hybrid camber/reverse camber retains the solid "riding on rails" feeling and pop of traditional camber while also providing insane float in powder. When you press your feet down on this board the camber under foot flexes and causes the tip/tail to rise, which provides extra float when you put your full weight down in powder. I would say this board is NOT for beginners because of how fast the base is, how stiff it is, and how locked in you feel when carving. This board is meant for a medium to advanced hard charger looking for a board that will absolutely kill it in powder and all mountain terrain.
Let me preface my review with this: I have never splitboarded before. Never ridden any other splitboards besides this.
I guess maybe I had different expectations for what this board would feel like. It's heavy. Like... really heavy. Could definitely be because I'm used to riding light park boards, but this thing felt like a tank.
Something about this board just felt... off. I consider myself a pretty good rider and this thing had me totally off my game. Tons of things this could be attributed to (heavy PNW snow, me being used to riding a true twin vs a tapered directional powder board, me having size 9.5 boots on a board this wide... the list goes on).
It felt like it just wanted to point in a straight line, and if I tried to force it to do anything else I felt the flex of the board hindering me.
It's a splitboard, you can get out in the backcountry with a lot less effort (ONCE YOU MASTER IT!)
Doesn't handle hardpack well
Too wide for smaller feet? (I got a 161)
Difficult to learn without guidance
Flex is weird
Guess it's back to the park and riding inbounds for me!
What is included with this board? It says it comes with skins, is this true?
Basically what I'm asking is if I have bindings already, do I just need to purchase this in order to get out there?
